PLOT : The Peanut Butter Falcon is a story of adventure and friendship, set in the world of a modern Mark Twain. Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from the care home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Through circumstances beyond their control, Tyler, a small-time outlaw on the run, becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince the kind nursing home employee charged with bringing Zak home, to join them on their wild journey.
